THE NANNY DIARIES (WIDESCREEN EDIT MOVIE

Customer Reviews

Top Customer Reviews

Format: DVD
The Nanny Diaries is very loosly based on the book of the same title. It is one of those cases where a book is adapted but is so altered from the original material that the result is a pretty standard Hollywood comedy, complete with a formulaic happy ending. Nanny, renamed Annie for the purpose of the movie, is the daughter of single mother who, having graduated with degrees in anthropology and finance is unsure of how to begin her professional life. After an accidental encounter with Mrs X and her little son Grayer in Central Park, she decides to become a nanny. Almost immediately, the novice babysitter Annie is frustrated by being at the constant beck and call of the selfish, thoughtless socialite. Since Annie has grown attached to her charge she finds it hard to quit. Meanwhile, she meets and becomes involved with the "Harvard Hottie" who lives in the building of her employers.

This differs a great deal from the book. In the novel, Nanny (who is never named) is an experienced nanny who is working on a degree in child psychology. She works as a nanny to pay the rent on the tiny Manhatten apartment she shares while attending university. She does not live with her employer, and only takes care of her charge in the afternoons after he is let out of school. The shallow Mrs. X became far too demanding of her time. The absent Mr. X is having an affair which plays a bigger role in the book and is only implied in the movie. The book's one failure is that their child, Grayer is not really an engaging character.

The book was something of a cause celebe when it was published and many New York socialites were offended as being portrayed as unsympathetic women. There were cries to boycott the book, but this obviously fell on deaf ears because the book was a bestseller.

I am rarely disappointed in which movies that I choose to watch, but this time I was. It is a case where real life copies the movie plot. An A list star, Scarlett Johansson chose to be in a B movie. And in the movie, she plays the part of an educated and graduated woman that instead of starting her life in the career that she worked for, she opts to take a less and easier way out by babysitting.

I unabashedly love and enjoy this movie but objectively it's very mediocre. However, not all things need to be quality pieces in order to be enjoyable.

Ok I am a guy I admit it, let me get that out of the way first. This is a movie that the girls will love and guys will watch with their gals but will secretly be thinking about gnawing their own foot off as a distraction (I ended up with few teeth marks myself). But hey my gal thought it was funny and heartwarming and that's what really mattered. What is the story? Beautiful girl educated for the business world realizes she doesn't want that life and by accident becomes a nanny, and you will never guess what happens. She ends up loving the kid, changing the child's mother for the better and finding her own true love. But wait there's another twist that you would never guess! Her true love is Harvard educated, handsome and rich. Didn't see that one coming did you. I am giving it a 1, my sweetie would probably have given a 4.
